    • Soccer

The Athletic's Adam Hurrey and Jack Pitt-Brooke are joined by actor and comedian Tom Rosenthal for the latest edition of 'Mesut Haaland Dicks'.
Tom's gloriously niche picks for his loves and hates of modern football include teams wearing emergency kit combinations, the humiliation of celebrating goals that don't actually go in, and fans who shout futile tactical advice from the stands.
Meanwhile, the Adjudication Panel also discuss whether commentators should be allowed to mention rival broadcasters during a game and whether there can ever be such a thing as "textbook trademark header"
